Tourism KZN on a mission
A media contingent scheduled to attend the Forbes Leading Women Summit at Durban ICC on 6 March were treated to a mix of struggle politics, religion, Zulu traditional leadership and a sumptuous braai arranged by Tourism KZN a day earlier to showcase the attractions of the North Coast.
The visitors began at the Luthuli Museum at Groutville which is a national cultural institution charged with conserving, upholding, promoting and propagating the life, values, philosophies and legacy of the late Chief Albert Luthuli, first African to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his non-violent stance in the fight for liberation. They also visited nearby the United Congregational Church where Chief Luthuli delivered sermons as a lay preacher.
After a sumptuous braai at the TEN11 Lounge & Braai House in KwaDukuza, the media group visited the King Shaka Visitor Centre which marks the resting place of King Shaka Zulu who was killed on 24 September 1828 by two of his brothers while he was sitting on a rock.
The Forbes Leading Women Summit which is in honour of International Women’s Day draws at least 1000 leading women who will be addressed by influential women from across industries and professions to spark ideas and inspire attendees through hard-hitting talks. The 2020 theme is: “The Ceiling Crashers 2.0: Power with Purpose”.
